How would you define your style?
I like to feel free to express myself without being trapped in the prison of a style or a form. I strive to make my work reflect the rigor of architecture, the freedom of painting, the rhythm and breaks of music and the magical mystery of cinema. I try to mix apparently heterogeneous but yet connected languages. My guiding principle is the search for communicative simplicity. As Bruno Munari would say: "Complicating is easy, simplifying is difficult". Simplicity is the hardest thing to do. To simplify you have to strip away and to strip away you have to recognize what is superfluous.
What are the challenges of your profession?
As in all creative jobs, the primary difficulty is for its value to be recognized. Making sure ideas are seen as an intellectual asset, and even more so a professional one, is a daily battle.
What is your living space like?
To me a home is like a treasure chest full of memories. I have a photographic memory of all the houses I've lived in. I remember details of objects, smells, the shape of every environment. In my home every space and object has their moment. The house is constantly changing: lights, smells, seasons transform the spaces, which are never the same, though they might appear to be. That's why one has to adapt to these changes.
